Some classics are best left untouched. I'm referring to classics like The Dukes of Hazzard (suffered from a terrible film remake) or The Who song 'My Generation' (suffered from a remake by Hilary Duff). But I'm going to suggest that the classic pizza does not belong in this category.
Don't get me wrong; a classic Italian pizza with tomato sauce, fresh grated cheese and pepperoni is a legendary thing. However, I will argue that there are endless possibilities when it comes to pizza. Mind you, this is a statement coming from someone who likes pineapples on pizza, truly believes there is no wrong way to eat a creme egg and doesn't mind a good rationing of HP sauce on BBQ meat.
That being said, I'm going to share my delicious recipe for Thai chicken pizza.
Ever got the feeling that as much as you love your regular takeaway, you really need to try something a little different? Something with a little more excitement? Well, for all those who haven't used hungryhouse to discover something different in their area, here's our mini guide to some of the more extreme options out there.
Sacha Baron Cohen is back, this time as Admiral General Aladeen, reigning dictator of the Republic of Wadiya. The World Premiere of The Dictator is to be held in London on May 10th, 6 days before the theatrical release on May 16th. And guess what? We have two tickets to the premiere for you!
With the stunt he pulled at the Oscars, the World Premiere of The Dictator in London is sure to be filled with plenty of Sacha shenanigans! Click here to win your pair of tickets to the World Premiere. Hurry up though; this competition ends on May 6th.
07/05 UPDATE: The winner has been notified! We hope to get photos from the premiere. We'll keep you posted.
Easter has come and gone, Christmas is miles away, and your birthday may or may not be in the next 2 months. These three things combined made us feel that you need a pizza party!
We asked you beautiful people: "Who's on your dream pizza party guest list?"
Your answers were remarkable! Our heads went spinning as we imagined the epic, and not so epic, pizza party guest lists. From the political (Margrette Thatcher), to the violent (Hitler and Genghis Khan), and the totally insane (The one armed, one horned flying purple people eater) we want to be invited to your party!
and the winner of the hungryhouse pizza party is ....
Picture this: you and your new iPad, walking down the street, hand in ... erm ... stunning retina display screen. This can become reality if you take the hungryhouse Timeline Challenge.
We've told you a little story on Facebook and we want you to get involved! 10 challenge questions lead you across our Facebook Timeline to tell the tale of a house that got hungry ('challenge' is a stretch, they're really more like quirky questions). If you answer all 10 correctly you're looking at 3 raffle tickets for the iPad draw. Answer them incorrectly and we'll ring your grade 5 teacher and tell her you failed. Although, we'll give you one raffle ticket for trying.
To get you excited about winning the new iPad, we put together a few things to do with your new toy.
1) Order food from hungryhouse! According to the experts (us), food tastes better when you order online. hungryhouse.co.uk is 95% optimised for iPad use [95% of the time it works all the time] ... so go ahead, tap your order away!
2) Buy a ridiculous iPad case. We pre-ordered the handmade Italian alligator skin case, but then cancelled when we realised it was $4,999 - not $4.99. The extra $4,994.01 really put us over budget, so we opted for the 'air' case instead ... it was free.
3) Download Epicurious app. We like takeaway, yes, it's true. We also like creative apps that tell you exactly what to cook when you only have ketchup, beer, and garlic in the fridge. It isn't pretty, but we still like the app.
4) Download Kindle app. Or ... you can win the new Kindle Touch from hungryhouse. Keep tabs on our Facebook page to find out how!
Everyone has heard the story of Saint George and dragon. But beyond the legend, how much about the man do we actually know? Our inquisitive nature, dedication to the truth, and a lazy wednesday afternoon led hungryhouse to investigate. So, here are some things that you might not know about our mysterious patron Saint.
We're clearly advocates of the all mighty takeaway. But there's no sense in denying the dine-out gene that is an inevitable part of our DNA. We enjoy food from start to finish - whether we cook it ourselves, order takeaway online, or wine and dine about town. Good food is what it's all about. To share our love for food, we treated one hungryhouse customer to a night in with her very own personal chef, Mark of Chez Vous Cuisine.
Chez Vous Cuisine specialises in bringing the elegance and taste of a restaurant experience, directly to your home. Personal chef Mark is known for his 25+ years of culinary experience and his 2 appearances on MasterChef, where he made it to the quarter finals. Nadia, our winner, was cooked a beautiful dinner in the comfort of her own home - with personal waiters to boot! Here are a few pictures of the wonderful evening.
Hot cross buns are so popular around Easter time, they have developed a persona of their own. They're as synonymous with Easter as coloured eggs, but they tend to get recognition only once, maybe twice a year. But when they do get noticed, they go big! We searched the web for the best of the best hot cross bun stories and this is what we found.
As the official overseers of springtime, hungryhouse wants you to welcome the season with a springtime party. We'll leave the location up to you, any spot of grass with direct sunlight will do. We've gathered the music, "important" information about spring, and the food to make your springtime party brilliant!
Guinness is good for you. Guinness gives you wings. Guinness was the first beer to be consumed in outer space. These are a few rumours surrounding the magic in a pint of Guinness. In a land filled with luck and gold clad leprechauns, it's no wonder Ireland created a magical beer.
We gathered hungryhouse employees to do a bit of 'company research' surrounding the claims of Guinness. After a few rounds, everyone started spouting off “facts” about Guinness. Our content managers fiercely took notes and googled such statements. Can you sort through this Guinness malarkey?
